Big news! We are excited to announce that Ratio has been acquired by Globant (NYSE: GLOB), an amazing Digital Services company that is expanding its footprint in North America. For over a decade Ratio has been creating digital experiences for every screen from our studio in Seattle; we’ve been fortunate to work with amazing clients who include Netflix, HBO, Yahoo, Ooyala, Dolby and many, many more. With this acquisition our team now has the opportunity to think bigger.
Globant has offices all over the world and provides a wide range of digital services for incredible companies like Google, Disney, Southwest Airlines, and J.P. Morgan. Globant was started in Buenos Aires, Argentina and has become one of a handful of true leaders in the world delivering digital services from locations that now span South America, North America, Europe and Asia. Today, the company features a number of Studios, each with a unique focus and offering set; Globant’s Studios include Big Data, Gaming, Mobile, Cognitive Computing, Quality Engineering, Cloud Ops and more.
It’s always a very challenging decision to join with another company – the notion of taking something that you have grown from an idea into a reality and blending that with another organization that itself has grown from an idea into a team and organization with its own identity and culture. It was a conversation that the owners and leadership team at Ratio spent a lot of time on, and it was a decision that we feel is a good for both our team here and our customers. This is because we found in Globant a fantastic energy and culture that closely aligned with our values. We found that its spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship is unparalleled in the market, and that it deeply cares about its people and supporting them in their goals and desires. And we found like-minded people who are passionate, creative and smart. Who care about doing great work and making their clients successful, while supporting each other throughout the journey.
We are honored to become a part of Globant and the Globant team – we’re excited to showcase our talents and skills to help them achieve their goals now and long into the future. For more information please read the press release here.
